American Blues Theater presents a live radio-style performance of Frank Capra's holiday masterpiece on stage at Greenhouse Theater Center. This has been a holiday tradition in Chicago since 2002, and this year's performance once again features the original director and ensemble that have warmed hearts for many holiday seasons. Complete with live sound effects, an original score and a cast of eight wonderful actors who bring the typical small town of Bedford Falls to life on stage, It's a Wonderful Life: Live in Chicago! recreates a 1940s-era radio broadcast of the heartwarming tale of troubled George Bailey's Christmas Eve journey through his life history. The production includes holiday carols, live commercials from actual local sponsors, telegrams from the audience read on stage and a "Soldier Spotlight," which honors one serviceman or servicewoman during each performance. After the show, the entire audience is invited to join the cast and crew for milk and cookies. Learn More

Cast did an excellent job with the roles they played and the material they had to work with...
Scenery and props were outstanding...
Music was appropriate for the times... Interesting use of the on-stage Victrola, but in some places the volume of the music overshadowed the dialog.
I was expecting a lighter farce, but the play was more of a drama and less of a comedy... I'm glad that we went, and now we can say that we saw Coward's first play, but wouldn't choose to see it again. Definitely worth the $10 ticket price.
